operation that began during that period, went at the george w. bush 2000 campaign and then the bush administration, again, setting the precedence in terms of personnel, policy and practices that are metastasizing today. next slide. another gang of six. you've already been introduced to abdel rahman al marudi. let me go through some photographs of the next. next slide. well, this is al marudi with governor bush and next slide. this is khaled saffuri, his right-hand man and nihad awad who runs one of the most aggressive muslim brotherhood fronts c.a.r.e. in the summer of 2001. this is another convicted terrorist running at the time of this photograph in march of 2000 the palestinian-islamic jihad organization. next slide. muslim al sadiqquey, the imam presenting the president a koran in the white house shortly after 9/11. next slide. this chap. he worked in the white house for most of 2001. he was the muslim gatekeeper and facilitated most of those photographs that you just saw there. he's currently on the board of directors of the american conservative union. the organization is brin

. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this. this is something in which romney got a much better response. take a listen. >> any policy that lift
, he had this little george w. bush kind of smirk on his face, like he kind of like he knew he was going to get it, he kind of wanted it and sort of enjoyed it a little bit. >> well, i thought -- >> i don't agree with it but he went in there wanting to get booed for something. he didn't want to just get -- >> i'm not sure of that. i think this is really as david said, a replay partly of 2000. when you had george bush who went out as a compassionate conservative and he wasn't really trying to be necessarily compassionate to black voters. he was really trying to tell swing voters, swing white voters, independents, that you know, i'm not as bad as you think i am, nor is this party. i think this is a part of a replay in a very closely contested race. >> and it's worth noting that george w. bush eventually gave up on relations with the naacp saying he had a virtually nonexistent relationship with them. i do wonder if it does change the minds of independent voters who saw that. the best moments were when romney was being self-effacing, even in the beginning when he said he was speaki
. but had's making the outreach. george w. bush did it as a candidate but then went several years without showing up at the naacp as president. >> yes, he did. i remember. he went in 2000 and never appeared again. >> yeah. i think -- i at tend he may have appeared at the naacp group. yeah, you are right. basically, though, a lot of antipathy built up over the years because of that. romney is making the outreach. he gets points for that. he also is running against the first black president. and so the fact he shows up as important. he made good points. i thought the idea of school choice is a great issue to go after the black vote with because democrats are tied to the futures union, opposed to anything involved in choice. rank and file, black folks like it. the problem was, you know, once again, he had the words but not the music. i think -- you know. in that way he -- he didn't win a lot of black votes today. >> part of romney's problem is, one, he's mitt romney. also, he's the presumptive nominee of a party that by generally speaking has either ignored african-americans or scapegoated a

. obama four years ago, john mccain got 4% of the african american vote-- well below the 11% george w. bush received when he received when he ran against john kerry in 2004. now the president continues to have strong support, high approval ratings among african americans but some democrats are worried about turnout and, scott, romney is hoping that his economic message will resonate at least to the point that voters aren't motivated to turn out against him. >> pelley: jan, thanks very much. today the house of representatives voted to repeal president obama's health care law. it is the 33rd time that house republicans have done that even though they know the repeal won't go anywhere, it won't be considered by the senate-- which is controlled by the democrats-- and, of course, the president would veto it. with so much urgent business before the house, why spend so much time voting to repeal the law over and over again? we asked nancy cordes to look into it. >> the bill is passed. >> reporter: house republicans have now held so many repeal votes lawmakers are losing track. >> this is the
. the expanded use of drones by the u.s., and the use of cyber-attacks against iran. witnesses included george w. bush's homeland security adviser and attorney steve lattuck who challenged the bush administration's use of tribunals at guantanamo. the justice department has named two attorneys to investigate the leaks. >> within the last few months, the american people and rest of the world have become privy to an astonishing number of revelations concerning the secret operations of our armed forces and national intelligence agencies. we have learned that a pakistani doctor cooperated with u.s. forces in conducting dna tests to help locate osama bin laden. we have learned that the president of the united states personally decides the human targets of drone strikes in other countries by looking at mug shots and brief biographies of targets, and that we have been told resembled the high school yearbook layout. we have learned that the united states in cooperation with its ally israel sabotaged the iranian nuclear campaign with the sucksnet virus. we have learned that obama expanded the assault even
in history for 8 years of george w. bush and let's learn the lessons. you know i would like to think, bill you and i have intellectual
by the loss of fractactories under the george w. bush administration because bush had no manufacturing policy. now, mitt, if you want to say that international companies coming to america to employ americans for products manufactured for sale in america are not welcome here, well good luck in november and then in your next failed presidential campaign. by the way, you will want to whisper your no-luring foreign investment policy to your fellow republican governors like vp chris christie who just returned offering israeli companies tax breaks for jobs. all of these governors are smart to do anything to create good paying jobs for their people. so was president obama. so sure under president obama, some stimulus money went to some international companies to create american jobs in america, and in contrast, under you mitt romney, american jobs went overseas and a lot of money came back right into your off-shore bank account. now, to discuss these issues and break this down is campaign strategist donnie fowler who has worked on the presidential campaigns of barack o
. remember, george w. bush did not attend the naacp for some time because he knew he would get that kind of a reception. >> we're going to have more on what happened in houston today later this hour. gloria, thanks very much. >> sure. >> there's also sobering news about a threat to the united states military and to israel. standby for details of a newly declassified pentagon report warning that iran's missiles are getting deadlier. also, a hazard of summer thunderstorms every airline passenger needs to be aware of. and a church school forcing little kids to beg for money. cnn's cameras are there. great shot. how did the nba become the hottest league on the planet? by building on the cisco intelligent network they're able to serve up live video, and instant replays, creating fans from berlin to beijing. what can we help you build? nice shot kid. the nba around the world built by the only company that could. cisco. energy is being produced to power our lives. while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providi
, it was -- it was -- we were in a full recovery mode. but it was way too late to save george h.w. bush. >> greta: i don't know how there could be a recovery between now and november by simple indicators, for instance, we are borrowing money, the interest rate is as low as you can get, you can't loosen up money. there are certain indcaishts where i don't know where the margins, where the president's going to see breathing room. have you problems in europe that are not getting better that have an enormous influence on the economy. nonetheless, he's the president and he gets stuck with it. i don't know -- i don't see any indicator in the economy that will help him enormously. >> i don't think we will have a strong rebound between now and election day. but the only point i was trying to make, even if we did, sentiment may have begun to turn in such a way that it's too late. >> greta: is there one ethnick group or demographic, which is key to the independent vote right now? >> well, no. i don't know how -- i couldn't possibly slice up the independent vote and tell you, you know, what its ethnic composition
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
, but this is a stage where candidates of both parties have been there before. george w. bush has attended our conference when he was a candidate. senator mccain and we really wanted to hear from candidate romney. >> we know there was a video that was sent out. and i tlnd was some disappointment. reporters who were there talked about the disappoint want that was felt. but let me ask you specifically about some policy issues here secretary gutierrez as a representative of the romney campaign. he's gone before the naacp at this hour, facing a group that has serious concernses about a particular policy stand that many latinos do as well. he has supported voter i.d. laws. does he need to address this so that minority voters who would be disproportionately affected and are disproportionately affected by these laws understand where he's coming from? >> we'll see if he addresses that's. i'm sure he will address a gamut of issues. and i tell you, you have to give him credit for the guts and for the honor of going in front of a very important audience who voted overwhelmingly for president obama. clari
of a past president, why not pick one from his own party, like president george w. bush. after l he wants to keep all of the bush tax cuts and add more tax cuts for the rich. that's why clinton said romney basically wants to do what they did before on steroids, which will get you the same consequences you got before on steroids. let's bring in msnbc political analyst and bloomberg columnist jonathan alter. you're writing a book on the campaign. i think you got a chapter tonight. is it possible that mitt romney doesn't know what he's talking about and he got hung up on his bs on the stump? >> he's trying to do something specific here, which is to say that barack obama is a paleoliberal, as some kind of very old fashioned, big government liberal before bill clinton came along and said the era of big government is over. the problem is that not just because hillary clinton is serving in his administration, but if you go down the issues one after another, barack obama is a clinton democrat. he is not some kind of, you know, 1950s style democrat. so they might not always get along that well per
romney. >> chip, this may be the positive side. president george w. bush grabbed 11% of voters in '04. mccain just got 4% in '08. when we're looking at governor romney and what he might be able to get is it that space that comes into play in the african-american vote? >> it is that space in the percentage and the space on the numbers. obviously in 2008, the african-american community, not only a big margin. they had a huge turnout because they were so excited to vote for barack obama the first time. you fast forward four years later and talk about the economy and some things that mitt romney has done and the turnout numbers may not be as large as sheer volume. percentages would probably be about the same. there's key states that could make a big difference. >> 40% of the new voters in '08 were african-americans. so the challenge here is you are intimating to get them back to the polls. >> it's going to be very hard to repeat that. >> april, chris, chip, thank you to all of you. >>> a clash over pay and vice president joe biden's hometown of scranton as the mayor cuts the pay of city worke
, buts a lot of that falls on george w. bush and the no child left behind. >> nice try. >> thank you. i think i succeeded. >> not so sure. >> blame bush for everything. >> that's when i do. >> you are on a roll. >> that's true though, right? >> bush started standardized test ?g. >> no, no child left behind. >> standardized testing is the disease. we can talk about that without saying bush made a regulation that made more standardized testing. that is the regular in our school. who started standardized testing? >> don't tell me what a disease is. i happen to be an expert in all manner of diseases. >> brooke, let me quote from bush's assistant secretary of education who in 2010 decided she didn't like it. she said, quote, instead of raiding standards, no child left behind actually lowered standards because many states have dumbed down their test or changed the scoring to say more kids are passing than actually r. >> okay, fine, but that is irrelevant to the story we were discussing. >> how is that irrelevant to the story? the story is that kids are saying school is too easy. i'm saying pa
>> i sang once for president george w. bush. and, really, it's tough. >> you knew all the words -- >> i did not mess up the words. but it's easy to do it. >> would you sing that for snus. >> maybe someday -- no. >> is there a videotape of that. >> that's not. >> we have to go. "erin burnett outfront" starts right now. >>> the house passes a bill for the 33rd time that has absolutely no shot of going anywhere. one lawmaker says he has a solution to fix congress. but is it really a solution or just another no-go gimmick? we'll ask him. >>> mitt romney gets booed in front of a large audience. was this a miscalculation on his part to even take the stage? >>> and the pentagon releases a report saying iran is dramatically upping the capability of some of its conventional weapons. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening. i'm tom foreman filling in for erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, fiddling in washington while bankruptcy burns across the nation. san bernardino, california, is the latest american town unable to pay its bills. the math is $46 million in debt. they've made drastic cuts i
the already dismal 11% george w. bush picked up in 2004. romney speaks today as less about the probably impossible task of moving african-american vote nears his column than it is about making his candidacy more appealing to white suburban voters. the naacp convention has been dominated by republican driven voter i.d. efforts in the states that many african-american voters see and intends to disenfranchise them. romney's already difficult task got harder yesterday when attorney general holder delivered a blistering speech framing texas' proposed voter i.d. law as a segregationist effort to erode african-american turnout. >> under the proposed law, concealed handgun licenses would be acceptable forms of photo i.d. but student i.d.s would not. many of those without i.d.s would have to travel great distances to get them and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them. we call those poll taxes. >> that reference was not in holder's prepared remarks. after holder spoke the convention pass ad resolution saying that the contempt citation that the republican hous
and that was not appealing to suburban white women. then governor george w. bush ran in 2000 with compassionate conservativism and that was a lot more appealing to those constituents. so really what mitt romney is doing is not necessarily to get significant numbers of black votes but to say to independent voters out there, i am reaching out. i'm not simply trying to be only looking at one ethnic group when it comes to the gop. i think that's really what the intention is to say i'm open, have open arms to reach out to many other people. >> how has he been received when you talk to folks there? what do they say? >> well, it was interesting because when he walked in about a half of the room stood up. about half didn't. then of course as he went to the speech he got tepid applause some places and okay applause other places but two areas where he got i think the loudest applause really dealt with, one, when he began to talk about the importance of family. when he said that if you wait to have a child until you're 21 years of age you have a 2% chance of being in poverty. then he said he was going to
it came to minority groups and paid for it with white suburban women. in 2000 when then governor george w bush offered up conservatism, that was perceived as being amenable to minority groups if you will. one of the things mitt romney will talk about today is going to be the issue the economy. he'll talk about the fact that 53% of black wealth has been wiped out because of the home crisis. the real number in some places is somewhere 28, 30% among black youth, when you talk about the importance of small businesses, black women, one of the fastest growing groups when it comes to small businesses in in country, the problem now of course is they likely started the businesses with home equity loans. so those are going to be some of the issues romney will focus on. >> it will be interesting to see if governor romney decides to touch on voting rights act and text challenge being you're in texas. >> he has to say something about it. >> make the last statement quick. >> i think he's going to have to touch on that. >> huge touch for african-american -- issue for african-americans. >> sometimes you
'll get a colder reception. remember, senator john mccain spoke here in 2008 when then governor george w. bush was running. he also spoke to the naacp during the campaign. i think people are asking for is what is he going to say in terms of specifics. that is, he likely is going to talk about the economy. when you look at the plaque unemployment rate, over 14%. among the youth, 20%. housing. 53% of black wealth has been wiped out because of the housing crisis. so what will he do to change that, to fix that. not broad issues, specifics. that's what folks are looking for. >> one columnist basically wrote a draft speech. here, if i were, mr. romney, here's what i would say. he says he should say, today, i serve notice that we intend to do something we've not done for more than 50 years, compete for your votes. for far too long, the democratic party has been allowed to depend on your support while offering you little in return. for far too long, it's gotten away with taking you for granted. do you think that that is true? >> i think he should -- i think those are things he should say. the re
george w. bush in september of 2008, the companies wouldn't have been able to pursue chapter 11 reorganization mr. wilson, mr. bloom, mr. feldman, is mr. rattner's this is that correct? do you agree that there simply were no other options available aside from complete liquidation on the path the was taken? >> we will start with you. smith it was our judgment, and i have no reason to question it coming and it was based on extensive talking in the market plus our own collective experience that if the government hadn't provided the financing that general motors went have been able and would have to liquidate. >> mr. feldman? >> i completely agree. we were in touch with the largest financial institutions in the world. they were not going to provide capital. we spoke to the largest funds in the world. they were talking about needing nine months to do diligence to make a determination as to whether they would make an investment. it was simply the u.s. government unfortunately was a lender of last resort, but it was the only lender in my view. >> that's correct. my written testimony th
: this is invisible until now. >> you know when we should thank for making it no longer invisible is george w. bush's labor secretary, elaine chow. who pushed through the disclosure requirements in the mid 2000 and fought tooth and nail by democrats. there is a lot of hypocrisy. the same people that want karl rove to reveal his donor list have no problem with obscuring their political activities. >> steve: he makes a good point, kristen. we do hear a number of democrats going, oh, man, with the koch brothers, republicans have got a gigantic financial advantage! now we realize unions are really kicking in more dough than we thought. >> let's be clear. the hypocrisy is on both sides. the republicans don't think that karl rove needs to disclose those people. so we have it on beth sides. both don't want to disclose who their donors are. they don't want transparency. i personally think they all should have to expose who the donors are. i don't think this should be done blindly or people should be able to hide who they're giving money to. >> what i was talking about is the vicious cycle of the government
